    If your GPA isn't great, make sure you kill it on your SAT scores, or you will have a hard time getting in. They love extracurricular stuff, if you plan on playing a non-club level sport, don't plan on having a social life, make sure you put yourself out there. Oh, and if you even think you might want to go into the business school, make sure you try and get in as a freshman, it is way harder to get in to it once you are already a student.

    Future students, enjoy your years here at Maryland! If you are having trouble acclimating to the course work I encourage you to approach your teacher aids and professor's office hours; this will help you immensely. There is tutoring provided in select locations throughout the campus, do not hesitate to utilize these services. Additionally, if you have some trouble finding friends make sure to join a club/organization. There are so many to chose from, it's quite amazing actually; there's bound to be something for everyone. My last piece of advice would be to make sure to have fun, do not let the stress of things get to you. Use every resource this wonderful campus has to offer to their terrapins!

    Bring your walking shoes because the campus is very big! Try to stay for entire football games. Study hard from the beginning of your freshman year--there is plenty of time to play later.
